Getting closer to what you may ask? The answer is getting closer to staging a first official operating session with friends. As I slowly inch closer, I put together a to do list or more accurately would be a “must purchase first” list.
On this list are a few items still needed before running my first session. My first item was a circuit protector for the layout from NCE which is now in my hand. The second item is a booster unit from NCE that will enable five throttles to be used. This item is coming next month. Next on the list is one more locomotive which is also coming early next month.
Next is one additional bill box for the car cards (in my website and on the layout car cards and waybills are synonymous). Next up is getting the finished car cards printed. Next on the list is a wall clock, followed up by rubber floor mats, adhesive hooks for the fascia to hang the last items on the list: small clipboards which will hold the car cards/switch lists, and printed instructions for each switch job/turn.
I’m getting closer, so stay tuned….!
